NYC death metal Winter Nights are unveiling their new music video “Starved For Energy” in support of their self-titled album released this past July. Heavy, somber, and progressive, the band explains the message behind the song and video:
“In this video, we portray life and death. As things die around us, energy is taken away from this world piece by piece. This song was written about searching for that lost energy when someone or something passes on.”
The video for “Starved For Energy” can be viewed via its premiere on Decibel Magazine HERE.
Winter Nights‘ latest full length follows the band’s 2014 widely praised record “An Endless Apocalypse”. Recorded between 2015 and 2018 at Atomic Sound in Brooklyn, New York, this new album is clearly progress for Winter Nights. Showing its maturity, it’s easy to hear the difference between the self-titled album and its predecessor.
Combining dark, foreboding lyrics and melodic interludes breaking up pounding riffs, the primary themes on the album relate to the feeling of being stuck on the idea of death. The lyrics are a sort of metaphor of losing someone and/or taking your own life for one purpose or another. Winter Nights explains the album in their own words, painting a grim picture:
“If you took a deep breath right before free-falling off a cliff in the pouring rain with a glimmer of sunshine trying to come through dark clouds only to fall into a dark hole and wake up crawling all fours on cold soil with snow falling in a dark moonlight forest.”
For fans of Belphegor, Amon Amarth, and Dark Tranquility, Winter Nights‘ self-titled album is available on Bandcamp, Spotify, and all other major digital platforms.
